While installing, debian-installer asks for a proxy to use to fetch
additional packages. I have preseeded this question with:
d-i mirror/http/proxy string http://proxy.do.main:1234
This setting is configured into apt, so apt-get works seamlessly.
The setting is also recorded in /var/log/installer/cdebconf/questions.dat.
Unfortunately, no other packages get this setting configured, so
apt-get is virtually the _only_ application that happens to use the
I'd like to fix that in an automated way. So I've done
for owner in `debconf-show --listowners` ; do
done | grep proxy
to find out the setting. But for some reason, debconf seems not to
know about this setting. Any ideas where it gets lost?
